YORBA LINDA, Calif. (AP) — No damage has been reported from the second of two moderate earthquakes that shook wide areas of Southern California.

California Institute of Technology seismologist Kate Hutton says the latest quake at 9:33 a.m. Wednesday quake was a magnitude-4.5 and was centered two miles northeast of the Orange County city of Yorba Linda. The quake's magnitude was revised several times.

Seismologists also slightly revised Tuesday night's Yorba Linda-area quake to magnitude-4.5.

Yorba Linda is about 35 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles.
